Work on developing the new Dún Laoghaire Baths will start 'in the coming weeks', it has been announced.
It's hoped the project will transform the seafront landscape in Dún Laoghaire and will reinvent the area as a destination for sea swimmers and sea sports enthusiasts.
The Dún Laoghaire Baths will see a new public café linked to an outdoor terrace with views over the bay, along with studio workspaces for artists and new life guard facilities.
The development will take approximately 22 months to complete and will open to the public in the spring of 2020.
Speaking at the contract signing, An Cathaoirleach of dlr, Cllr Tom Murphy, said the development of the Baths site "represents a significant long-term investment in this public facility for residents and visitors to our county."
The project is expected to cost around €10m to complete.
